Programs to speed up videos

In adthetion to the programs, there are also applications for smartphones and tablets, capable of performing this operation, which you will find after the computer programs that I am about to suggest to you.

VLC (Windows – Mac – Android – iOS)

If you just want to speed up or slow down a video while you are playing it, the best choice is without a doubt VLC, the free player available for Windows, Mac and Linux. This program, however, will only allow you to view it at a mothefied speed and not to save it, which you can do with the next software that I will suggest.

Once installed in your system use it to play the desired video; you don't have to worry about the format, VLC really reads anything! During video playback, simply press on the Playback menu, then on the Speed ​​item to see a menu containing a series of items relating to the playback speed.



To change the video playback speed, simply select one of the items as inthecated:

  • Faster: fast forward
  • Faster (fine): advances with a smaller increment
  • Slower (fine): rewind with a smaller increment
  • Slower: fast rewind

To get everything back to normal just select the item Normal speed. As an alternative to the menu you can speed up video or slow it down using the + (plus) or - (minus) key on the numeric keypad. Each press of these buttons will speed up or slow down the video, so just play around with the settings to find the right rhythm.
